While the leagues in Spain, Italy and France have been wrapped up, the Premier League is still alive with Liverpool and Manchester City on each others’ necks for the league crown.
However, we are seeing much more entertainment in the race for the top four between Tottenham Hotspurs, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United. Spurs and Chelsea currently hold the initiative as they both occupy the third and fourth positions respectively.
Bournemouth v Tottenham
This is a tricky tie for Pochettino’s side as Eddie Howe’s men are capable of pulling a surprise. With an all-important return leg against Ajax in the Champions League, Spurs will try to limp over the finish line in the race for qualification with at least a draw.
Arsenal v Brighton
Following three consecutive defeats in the league, Arsenal will be hoping to keep tabs on Chelsea in the race for Europe with a win over Brighton. Thankfully, they will play in front of their home crowd as their away form has been apologetic this season. If they slip up this weekend and Chelsea and Spurs win, then the only way into the Champions League next season will be through winning the Europa League.
Chelsea v Watford
Chelsea have been inconsistent all season and this will be the greatest fear of their fans going into the final two games. Again, Sarri will depend on star man Hazard to see this one through, but the Blues are lacking in defence as much as they are lacking in finding the back of the net. Chelsea will definitely want to win their last home game of the season considering their next game is away at a rejuvenated Leicester City side.
Huddersfield v Manchester United
The honeymoon has long been over for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with his side the most vulnerable in the race for a top-four spot. Sitting in 6th position, 3 points behind Chelsea and 1 point behind Arsenal, United need nothing short of a win away at Huddersfield to keep the pressure into the final game of the season. Should United drop points in this game, that will be goodbye to Champions League next season.
